Forfeiting an Intramural contest is inconsiderate and a waste of time and money for everyone involved, therefore, the following forfeit policy will be in effect:
Additionally, for all weekly scheduled leagues the following forfeit policy is also in effect:
For teams who do forfeit, there is a $30.00 forfeit fee that must be paid in the Recreational Sports Office by 12 p.m. the day before your next game, or you will be dropped from further competition until the forfeit fee has been paid. Teams paying forfeit fees after 12 p.m. on Thursdays will not be guaranteed a scheduled competition during the following week of play. If the first forfeit fee is paid, then your team will still be eligible for post-season competition. Any team that forfeits twice is immediately dropped from further competition.
Additionally, please note that game time is forfeit time. However, in an effort to reduce the number of forfeited competitions and to accommodate the busy schedules of our students, the Recreational Sports Department will be implementing the following policy for weekly scheduled league competitions: If the minimum number of participants are not present and ready to participate at the time of their scheduled competition, the game clock will be started and the late team will be given a 3-minute grace period to arrive. Of course, all team members must then check in with the scorekeeper and the captains' meeting must be held before play can begin. The game clock shall not stop during this process and extra time shall not be added to the game clock to make up for lost time.
If the minimum number of participants has still not arrived by the end of the 3-minute grace period, the contest shall be declared a forfeit and the aforementioned $30.00 forfeit fee must be paid before participation in the league can continue. The Recreational Sports Department respectfully asks that teams do not take advantage of this grace period and instead arrive at least 5 minutes before the scheduled time of competition.
